ACER publishes today its opinion and recommendation on the Network Code on Emergency and Restoration. ACER acknowledges that the Network Code is in line with the Framework Guidelines on Electricity System Operation, and its objectives, and therefore it recommends its adoption by the European Commission.

ACER still flags a few areas in which the Network Code could benefit from improvements, namely in the level of harmonisation of market interactions provisions, roles for regional security coordination bodies, treatment of Energy Storage, consistency and coherency with the interrelated Network Codes, national scrutiny and clarity in drafting of certain provisions in the Network Code and its Supporting Document. Since these improvements do not affect the compliance with the Framework Guidelines on Electricity System Operation, ACER advocates that they are addressed by the European Commission when adopting the Network Code.
